Aurifil Designer for September and more!

I LOVE September! And this year, I love September even more than usual! There are lots of great things happening and I can hardly wait to share them with you. The biggest news is that I am very excited and honored to be the

Aurifil Designer of the month for September!

2013 Kimberly Einmo September Aurifil designer button

Wow! I can still hardly believe it, really. Pat Sloan (the queen of all things quilting!) asked me to be an Aurifil BOM designer last year and I’ve been eagerly anticipating my turn — especially when there have been so many awesome designers already this year!  Check them out by clicking HERE. For my block I designed a fun pieced star variation using Pat Bravo’s “Rock and Romance” fabric line from ArtGallery. All the designers were challenged to create a pieced block inspired by classic rock and for me, that was Electric Light Orchestra — ELO — from the 80’s. In particular, my favorite song was Mr. Blue Sky. (Remember that one?) If you want to bounce along to a blast from the past, click HERE. ( I don’t think there’s anyone who could be in a gloomy mood after hearing that song.….)

15 Block assembled!

And just look how gorgeous the blocks look for 2013 already!

2013 aurifil jan to sept blocks

So without further ado, click HERE  and HERE to read Pat’s interview with me.  I really opened up and shared some fun and quirky things I hope you’ll enjoy finding out about! You’ll get to see my very first quilt (never before seen, and quite possibly never, ever to be seen in public again….) You’ll get to see a very spiffy leisure suit I made (and for which I won a blue ribbon in 1975) when I was 12 years old, plus I think you might be surprised to find out what my favorite passion is other than quilting. I shared LOTS of photos  plus you’ll get to download the instructions for making your “Mr. Blue Sky” Aurifil BOM, along with the previous 8 blocks!

Giveaway Alert!

The best news is that Aurifil has graciously offered to host a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S thread giveaway in honor of my being the September Designer of the month! (THANK YOU, AURIFIL!!!) All you need to do is leave a comment here on the blog and tell me what color I think is the “new neutral”! (Hint: You’ll find the name of the color somewhere in my answers to the interview questions.)  Or, simply share what surprised you the most about me after reading the interview. We’ll have a drawing on September 9th, which is another reason why I love September so much. September 9th is my birthday! (Woo hoo!) And this year, I’m celebrating a milestone birthday, so it is extra special! Can you guess which one?

A very special quilting retreat workshop!

And last but certainly not least, I’m very excited about a special event coming up soon. Best of all, its not too late for YOU to  join me for an exclusive, three day retreat at the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY! That’s right — if you want to get away from it all, escape the late-summer chaos at home, or enjoy some R & R (recharge and rejuvenation) quilting time, there are still a couple of openings left in my workshop.  I’ll be teaching a fun, precision-pieced, modern sampler quilt where I’ll teach you absolutely every trick in the book for using precuts! And don’t worry — there is absolutely NO homework or advance preparation involved. (How great is that?) All you need to do is bring 1 Jelly Roll and 1 matching Layer Cake plus 4 yards background fabric and you’ll make this quilt in your favorite fabrics and colors!


For more information, click HERE.

If you can’t join me in Paducah in September, why not plan a trip to the Tetons and visit me in October at:

The Jackson Hole Quilt Festival!

That’s right — there’s simply no prettier time of year in Jackson Hole than early October. I’ll be teaching 4 of my most popular (and favorite!) classes and you’ll have a grand time enjoying the outstanding weather and scenery in between quilting, making new friends, and immersing yourself in all-things quilting. Seriously, it is going to be such a great time! In fact, I’ll be spending my 25th wedding anniversary there in Jackson Hole with the quilters while my sweet hubby holds down the fort back here at home. (What a fantastic guy — he’s a keeper, I tell ‘ya!)  For more information and all the details, click HERE.

So, that’s the recap for the beginning of what will be a glorious month ahead. I hope you are all as excited about September as I am! I’ve got lots more to share with you in the coming weeks.

Woo hoo!!! September is here, so bring on the changing leaves, cooler temperatures, lots more quilting, and all good things!

  5. Yes, happy early birthday wishes! As for the new Neutral – it’s Chartreuse. Thanks so much – I enjoyed reading your interview and seeing your sewn projects!

  6. Chartreuse is the new neutral! My 6 year old daughter agrees – in fact, she spent an hour this weekend describing all the properties and uses for the color chartreuse to her American Girl doll this weekend. Honest! That kid has a great eye for color 🙂

  7. Wow!!! Love the new neutral Chartreuse and would love to be your winner and add it to my thread stash. Awesome block and your sewing studio is any girls dream. Hope you have a super birthday and get to spend it with your family and friends.

  10. I think the new neutral is red. it goes with everything, including slime green chartreuse!

  11. I hope you have a wonderful birthday! The new neutral is Chartreuse and I just wanted to say that your studio is amazing. It looks very inviting and a great space to work in 🙂

  12. Enjoyed reading your interview and listening to “Mr. Blue Sky.’ Your new neutral is chartreuse. That is a color that I am starting to appreciate (Made a batik purse recently with primarily blues and turquoise and found that the chartreuse fabric really set it off, much to my surprise and I really like it!)
    Hope you have a very Happy Birthday! (It will be easy for me to remember as that was my mother’s birthday also)

There is a two color quilt, in the American Patchwork and Quilting 2013 calendar for the month of August, that uses chartreuse for the star-like design and white for the background. It is so pretty and bright. It’s on my list of quilts to make. Love the beautiful colors in the Aurifil thread giveaway.

  17. Best wishes Kimberly! Hope your birthday is filled with more wonderful memory making! I’m guessing your 50th based on your comment about college in the 80’s.

  18. Your new neutral is chartreuse! Love it and happy birthday!

  21. Hi, Kimberly! I want to come to ALL your events, but that just isn’t practical (the darn job that pays for my hobby somehow expects me to spend time here, oddly enough). I love that Aurifil collection, and I love Pat Sloan’s designs, as well as yours. And I think Chartreuse is a brilliant new neutral! So cheerful! That Jackson Hole retreat sounds amazing, and the quilt is beautiful. Do you ever sleep? You’re EVERYWHERE these days!

    • Thanks, Emily! As I keep telling my husband, sleep is over-rated! LOL!

  26. I bet you also liked the “green apple” Jolly Rancher hard candy back in the day. Now that’s chartreuse!

  39. Happy Fiftieth Birthday to you!! I was surprised to learn that you enjoy scuba diving! My husband and I are also travelers. We are going this month a cruise through the Panama Canal. We love cruising but I don’t care to combine it with quilting. I prefer to enjoy the traveling aspect. Then when I quilt, I concentrate on just that, and I LOVE retreats!

  40. Love the block! Always enjoy your work. Wish I could come to the retreat — one day.

  41. Chartreuse is your new neutral. It reminds me of my first car, which was a chartreuse mustang, nicknamed the “glow worm”. Happy birthday, I wouldn’t dare guess which milestone.

  42. Chartreuse !! I love it. Seriously I am doing a quilt right now using a green that could qualify. ..My birthday is in September also. Winning some fantastic thread would be a great gift.

  48. Chartreuse is the new neutral!!

  51. Chartreuse is the new neutral! I loved the interview Kimberly. It’s really crazy…every time I read Facebook you are doing something new…another magazine, interview, your 5th book! WOW!

  68. It was fun reading your interview with Pat Sloan. My husband was in the Air Force too ~ for 23 years, but we didn’t travel and move quite as much as you! Yes, Chartreuse is the new neutral and I believe it. Green is constantly being touted as the new neutral in clothing, so obviously why not thread and fabric?! Great, as green is my favorite color! See you at Craftsy!!

  77. Chartreuse is the new neutral. Have a wonderful September 9th birthday!

  78. The new neutral is Chartreuse. I SO enjoyed your interview with Pat Sloan. It’s interesting to see how all of your life experiences & education have culminated into one wonderful, delightful, talented lady. You are AMAZING! After listening to ELO, I bet you love TSO. We go to their Christmas Concert every year at the Toyota Center in Houston. Hope you have a wonderful birthday too!

  79. ELO?? I thought DH and I were the only “flashback” lovers..haha

    Great interview with Pat. It’s always interesting to hear how careers/interests/passions came into being.

    LOVE Aurifil!!! My Janome will sew with anything but my favorite is Aurifil. It doesn’t “shed” as much. I have to order it because it’s hard to find where I live.

    I think your new neutral is chartreuse. Not a “neutral” I’d pick but it would depend on the quilt.

    BTW…Happy upcoming Birthday 🙂

  80. Wonderful studio – and I do think and create more in tidy and organized surroundings, as well! Your ‘new neutral’ is chartreuse – I will have to try it out as a pizzazz-giving element in a future quilt 🙂 and thank you for this lovely giveaway!

  86. Chartreuse is the new neutral! You look so familiar! Trying to figure out where I know you from?

  87. Happy Birthday!!! Enjoyed reading your interview and love that you’ve chosen Chartreuse as a new neutral and thanks for the sweet giveaway 🙂

  95. well it wasn’t hard to find the new neutral color as called chartreuse, but I am still a fan of piecing with the soft gray. picking and we all do it is easier with that color and it does not show through any other color fabric. NOW that said I am going to wish you a 50th B day only from the clue that you are celebrating the 25th anniversary. And 45 isn’t really a milestone.. LOL have a great B-day. I will look forward to watching more classes & tutorials. Let’s win that thread box. yippee for the chance.

  104. Happy Birthdaaaaay, May you have many many more!!!!!! I love the thread collection!

  105. Chartreuse is the new neutral. Wow! Very bold. I think SCUBA diving would be very inspirational for designing. I love your Craftsy classes.

    Happy, happy birthday. Let’s see…you must have married at age 8, right?

  106. Love this block and Aurifil thread! Stars are always a good theme for celebrating anything, so I hope you have a great birthday. I think I’ll use a few of this block to make a table runner for my Communities in Schools silent auction donation. Thanks!

    PS – When are you diving in Hawaii next? We love diving on the Big Island

    • Wow! We need to talk — so you can tell me all the best dive sites in Hawaii!

  111. I think what surprised me the most was you thinking that Chartreuse is the new neutral. I am also a lover of blue and Chartreuse is not a color I care for at all.

  112. Okay I am still in shock that you use a laser to square-up your quilts!!! How did I miss this vital piece of info?! What an inspired idea – going to have to try that. And I had no idea that you were ever a church organist – you are indeed one multi-talented lady!

  113. Well of course Chartreuse is the new neutral…great color. So often found in nature. I am so happy the thread manufacturers have made thread to match all the beautiful fabric! So glad you have the scuba diving to share with your boys. It’s so great to have a common activity to share with your family. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway! I LOVE Aurifil thread!

  114. Happy Early Bday! Chartreuse is the new neutral. Thanks for the chance to win

  115. New neutral…,,Chartreuse! Always my least liked color. But last year it started to appeal to me and now… I keep buying everything in that color. Your block is a fun one. And I enjoyed the interview very much. What a wonderful life and talent.

  116. Really enjoyed reading your blog. Love the block!

  117. I love your studio! I dream of the day when I have the opportunity to design a studio of my own. And I read that you think chartreuse is a new neutral. Interesting!! It certainly is beautiful with the blues you placed next to it! Happy birthday and thanks for the giveaway!

  118. Happy Birthday! Your blocks are beautiful, always enjoy all the inspiration and I LOVE the thread!

  119. Chartreuse! Ha, and I saw the other answers :). Seriously, I so admire your work and can only dream maybe one day… I am new to quilting and am almost finished with my first!

  120. Chartreuse. Really? I guess I’ll have to give it a try! Thanks for hosting the giveaway, and Happy 29th Birthday! ;->

  121. Oh yeah, chartreuse is the new neutral. I like that idea!
    Love the Mr. Blue Sky block, although I have to admit I didn’t remember the song.
    Happy Birthday, Kimberly!

  122. Chartreuse is the new neutral! What a great blocks!

  123. Hi, Kimberly! It’s marlyarly from Craftsy. 🙂
    You are the one from whom I learned about Aurifil thread, and so many other skills from your Craftsy classes, which are both so great! I love your block of the month, and enjoyed reading your interview too. Wishing you a very happy birthday, and a joyous year ahead, and thank you for sharing your love of quilting and for being such a great teacher!

  124. Your vote is for chartreuse, and you will be exactly 40 ; ) I am so thrilled to see where your career has taken you, and so happy that more and more quilters are able to experience you joy in creating beautiful quilts. You go, girl!! XXOO

  125. Chartreuse. And I think you’re right. It pairs unexpectedly well with so many other colors. And Happy Birthday in advance. Thanks for the great blog!

  126. Chartreuse. Sept 9th was my dad’s birthday too. Have a wonderful birthday.

  127. Chartreuse is the new neutral. Happy birthday tomorrow! I’m just making your beautiful block right now. Greetings from Turid in Norway.

  128. Chartreuse, who knew? Not my favorite but it could work. There are a lot of yarns coming out in that color too.

  129. Chartreuse is the new neutral

  130. The new neutral is royal blue—one of my favorite colors.

  131. Since you are celebrating a milestone birthday, I’m going to guess that your are turning 50. That was just about my only “milestone” birthday (so far). You said that you believe Chartreuse is a ‘new’ neutral. Hope you have a wonderful birthday tomorrow! Thanks for the chance to win!

  132. Chartreuse. And I am glad

  133. Well, I’m sorry to say I’m not a fan of “Mr Blue Sky”. I went to HS and college in the 80’s too and was more of a New Wave girl. I do most certainly agree that in the right amounts, chartreuse can be the new neutral. And from one September birthday girl to another – Happy Birthday! 🙂

  134. I love that Chartreuse is the new neutral!

  135. Loved your Blue and White sampler with the quilting by Judi Madsen. It is beautiful. Say, your sewing room looks fantastic and I would love to have one like that! Hope I can take a class with you sometime.

  136. Oh, and Happy Birthday!!!!!

  137. I would be willing to give chartreuse a try as the new neutral:-)

  138. I would love to try out the chartreuse. Using Aurifil for the first time with the mystery quilt class I am taking that you teach on Craftsy. I tried it out on some trial blocks and cannot believe what I have been missing using this thread. Will only use Aurifil for all my future projects. If I am going to spend a lot of time on a quilt and money, I want to use the best thread.

  139. Kimberly,
    I know I missed the give away opportunity, but wanted to say hi. After reading pat sloan’s interview I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Your studio is wonderful! We have quite a lot in common….I am a Miami grad , just celebrated 25 years of marriage, have moved often….thanks for sharing!
    Terri in Texas

    • Hi Terri! Thanks so much for leaving a comment on my blog! Wow — we DO have so much in common! You were a Miami U grad? (Go Redskins — I mean, RedHAWKS. Although I never did agree with the mascot change….) Congratulations on your 25th anniversary!!! I truly hope our paths cross in person sometime soon!

  140. I know this is past time for the giveaway but I just had to say that I have been a fan for a long time. thanks for the look into your life and your craft!
